Hello - I have a week old and I have been reading about Attachment Parenting. I am having a hard time with only one part. I haven't found a sling that works for me yet, so I hold Zach most of the day, but there are times I have to put him down and I have been feeling guilty. Also, we received a swing as a gift and he seems to like it for short periods of time. I put him in it when I shower and when I'm cooking. I always have it in the room with me when he is in it. What are peoples feelings and thoughts about this? How much time during the day do you use your sling? When not in the sling, do you hold your baby the rest of the time? I don't want to do anything detrimental. Thanks for your thoughts on this.
